Turf Toe Plates, made of composite carbon graphite, limit the range of motion in the great toe, relieving pain in the big toe joint. The Morton's extension that extends under the big toe is designed to limit the range of motion of your big toe, while allowing your lesser toes free movement. The plate is very thin yet very stiff. Because the plates are very hard we suggest wearing them beneath insoles; either the shoes' existing insoles or over-the-counter insoles such as Pedag SOFT Shoe Insoles.
Sizing: We strongly suggest that you use length rather than shoe size as the determining factor in deciding what size plate to purchase. The best method is to measure your foot on a piece of paper. Then choose a plate that is slightly shorter than your foot. The goal is to have the Morton's extension piece reach between the base of the toe nail and the tip of your big toe.
For example, my foot measures 10", and the 39/40 (9 1/4") fits perfectly. When my heel is in the heel cup, the arch hits in the right place and the Morton's extension goes all the way to the tip of my big toe.
Dimensions: Medium width only, 1/8" thick. See individual sizes for length.
Turf Toe Plates may be modified with a heat gun, but once modified cannot be returned for a refund or exchange.
Indications - Turf toe plates are used in the treatment of hallux limitus, hallux rigidus, turf toe, gouty arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis of the great toe joint.
Foot Care Tip! What are the differences between all of the carbon fiber/graphite plates sold at Myfootshop?
- Molded Turf Toe Plates are thin, 3/4-length, carbon graphite arch supports, with a molded arch and Morton's extension.
- Flat Turf Toe Plates are similar to the molded plates, but are completely flat, with a Morton's extension.
- Hallux Trainer Inserts are a full length finished carbon graphite insert with Morton's extension that have the same indications as turf toe plates.
These three turf toe plates are best used for hallux limitus and hallux rigidus and turf toe.
